Presented by Lydenskab
An operatic manifest
You will be witnessing a beginning; a genesis. Or, it might feel like several beginnings arising from a deep point in time and history; the woman. Best is to give up the search for a linear narrative as this piece is constructed of seperat units of juxtaposing and rather incoherent situations. Layer by layer the stage and the music grow deeper until all musicians and dancers melt into one total instrument, with all the voices of women, as one giant vibrant body.
Ensemble Lydenskab presents, as a part of Aarhus 2017 capital of culture, new music and libretto, composed and written by award winning composer Louis Aguirre, in a performance with inspiration and text from writers from Hesiod to Catrine Breillat. THE WAY THE DEAD LOVE is the result of a transmedia meeting between Louis Aguirre (CU/DK), Ensemble Lydenskab, singer Laura Bowler (GB), Dancers Ichi Go (J/D) and Tizo All (BR/D), and stage director and choreographer Troels Primdahl. All set in a stage design made by Anders Bigum, Troels Primdahl and David Ramíez Gómes
